Noah Gragson is second in the Xfinity Series standings but is experiencing a bit of a rough patch. He hasn’t cracked the top five in two races and finished 22nd at the Pocono Green 225 as the pole sitter. Can he get back on track Saturday at the Pennzoil 150? We go over how we think Gragson will do in the road race here.

History at Indianapolis Motor Speedway

Gragson finished third in his only career race at Indianapolis, so there’s not a lot too much to go on. He accomplished that starting in 13th. He should have some degree of confidence given how well his last race at the venue went.

2020 performance

Gragson is tied for first in top five finishes (7) and tied for second in wins (2). The 21-year-old is only three points behind first place Chase Briscoe in the Xfinity Series standings. He’s been one of the most successful drivers we’ve seen this season.

Daily fantasy advice

Gragson has been exceptional at road races as of late. He’s notched top five finishes in three of the four road races he was a part of last year. He’s only missed the top 10 three times in 12 races and should be viewed as a top contender — especially since he’s starting in eighth. When he gets out in front, he stays out front for a while. He been leading for an average of more than 27 laps per race over the course of his last 10 races.
